The ParticipACTION Teen Challenge encourages community organizations in every province and territory who serve teens aged 13-19 to register at Once approved by their provincial/territorial coordinating organization, the local community organization works with teens to design a program. When the program is designed, the organization will  apply for Teen Physical Activity Grants of up to $500 to support a local program or event. All programs must provide opportunities for teens to get active for at least 30 minutes  once/week for four weeks. Funding can be provided to local organizations for things such as equipment, coaching or access to facilities in order to enable teens to get active. Teens work directly with their local organization to confirm their participation.Read More
